Well, we've split with the Magic and Bobcats. Let's hope for a split versus the Heat!
Just for reference, let's see what I wrote about the last Heat match, which was Dec. 2. (It also happened to be the second game of a five-game losing streak.)
Well, there you go.
Obviously, the Kings aren't going to smell a victory shooting 37 percent. So, scoring baskets is obviously goal #1. Also, the team should try to limit the Heat's scoring. That's goal #2.
Remember: no team has ever won without outscoring their opponent. It's a proven fact.
With that insight, it's to the lineups we go!
PG - Le Chocolat Blanc
SG - Le Flash
SF - Le James Posey
PF - Le Udonis Haslem
C - Le Aristotle Gros
PG - Brick Bibby
SG - Brickin Martin
SF - Peja Stobrickovic
PF - Kenneth Corbrickius
C - Brick Miller
(Yes, I called Shaq "The Fat Aristotle." Tell me it's not true.)
The line: +9. Kind of a large line, no? Nine seems like a lot. Hmm.
Fun bet o' the night: Shareef minutes. He had 19 on Thursday and 20 last night. And, oh yeah, this guy can't open his mouth. I thought it was fantastic when he yelped after being called for a foul in the second quarter. Actually I was worried. I predict 20 minutes again.
Sideshow most likely to be entertaining: Who's the more disappointing small forward? Can we trade them, straight up? Throw Ron-Ron in there, too - just mix them up and let Indy, Sac and Miami pick one out. There you go. Problems solved.
Best matchup: The Sheriff vs. The Congressman. Maybe Shaq-Fu will try to give B-52 a cold again. (A-whiff. A-whiff.)
Here's to hoping the Kings score more than 48! A win would surely make us forget that awful Saturday game!
Let's. Go. Kings.
